Read Time: 3 minutes

I was inspired to make this delicious and super nutritious dip, spread, or savory dish when my hubby and I visited one of the healthier option restaurants here in Singapore. We always pick beetroot hummus, and both of us loved it. So I thought, why not try and make at home?

The ingredients are all super easy to find in the supermarkets, and for sure, you can try this recipe at home. What I love about this beetroot hummus would be the combination taste of chickpeas, tahini, and earthy, little bitter taste from beetroot itself. I love adding it into my lunch meal, you’ll see the photo below šŸ˜‹.

Health benefits of Beetroot Also known as beets – well, not only a great source of antioxidant root vegetable but also packed with other essential nutrients like potassium, vitamin c, vitamin B9, manganese, iron, and a good source of fiber. There’s so much to mention here, and Google can provide more on that šŸ™‚.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

Ingredients

TOTAL TIME: 1hr and 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup uncooked Chickpeas
  • 1 medium-sized Beetroot
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tsp Dried Ground Cumin – One of my fave to buy spices from Mccormick Spice
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini – I always use Cypressa Foods
  • 1/2 Size Lemon
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil – Organic Olive Oil you can buy from Zenxin Organic Food
  • 1 Tbsp Water
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions:

  1. Soak the chickpeas overnight and cook for an hour or until it turned soft over medium heat. Skip this step if you’re using canned chickpeas.
  2. For the beetroot, wash it properly, and cook (with the skin) for an hour or until it turned soft. Once cooked, set aside and let it cool down for few minutes, peel the skin, Cut the beetroot into pieces.
  3. In a food processor, add the cooked chickpeas, pieces of beetroot – if you have a small size of food processor like mine, add the half of pieces beetroot, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, dried ground cumin, salt, and pepper. And the last one, water. You may add more oil or water to help blend if required. And don’t forget to add the remaining pieces of beetroot, if you’re using a small food processor like mine. Stir once in a while to check the texture.
  4. The beetroot hummus is ready to serve! Enjoy it with crackers, on toasts, an add-on to your meals. Or just as is.
  5. Refrigerate or serve immediately. Keep in the fridge/refrigerator and well covered, for 4-5 days.
